A mysterious fire outbreak claimed the lives of a pregnant woman and three others in Asaba, Delta State.

Eyewitnesses said the fire outbreak started at about 1:30am on Saturday and consumed an eight-room apartment along Okpanam road, leaving the pregnant woman and the three other occupants of the house who could not escape to be burnt beyond recognition.

The source of the fire outbreak could not be immediately ascertained as it was said to have consumed the entire building mysteriously with the support of the weak harmattan season.

But some residents of the area said it may be connected with the process of knock-out shootings that has been on the increase in the last few days in the state.

Checks revealed that victims of the unfortunate incident were caught in deep sleep when the fire started and had struggled to save their lives but all to no avail.

The landlord of the building, Ogbueshi Nwankwo, said that he got a wind of the outbreak after the fire service men had offered their best to save many lives.
